    And it's freaking amazing.

    At first I hated it because I felt like it was completely off balance, and always felt like I was tipping over (The first time was really horrible). Then I drove it around for a couple hours and it became a blast. It's like driving an ATV on the road.

    Plus you can have it auto downshift if you feel like being lazy (Though it downshifts at retardedly low speeds. I Think it downshifts from 5th to 4th at like 30 mph, and then from 4th to 3rd at around 24 mph, then 2nd around 20mph and 1st at 15mph)

    lolol. I can't say it's the best looking thing either . But overall it's just "fun" to drive and ride around. Even though it's only 1000cc it's pretty quick to accelerate. Shame I'm only renting it for a couple days though.

    This one was a 2012 model so I don't know if you've experienced anything different glupus, but I had no problem doing 35-40 in 4th gear down the street

    hmm... it was a couple of years ago... just after my father bought a can-am atv, we got a test ride on a small airfield =)

    About the look of it? well.. there are uglier stuff on the marked ^^

    this looks abit more like the one I tried..

    I prefer to not look at them as bikes, but as snowmobiles with weels xD (ofc you can but weels on a snowmobile/scooter but you will need snow to provide cooling)

    Yea it's been changed a bit. I'll only have a couple more days to ride around on it. Going to see how it handles the interstate at 75+ next couple days.
